The Committee

Joy Foster

Committee member

Joy Foster

I was born in Aberdare in south-east Wales, where I have spent most of my life. I am married with one daughter, of whom I am immensely proud. I was born in 1957and attended Clive Hall School Llandaff, Cardiff.

I worked in a Dental Laboratory but gave up employment to raise my daughter; then returned to dental laboratory work in Aberdare and Cardiff until I retired. I now work part-time at a local printers.

I am a member of Highland Place Unitarian Church, Aberdare and have been branch, district, and National President of the Unitarian Women's League. I am also editor of the National Women’s League 'League Letter' a bi-monthly publication. I run a weekly women's meditation group, for the community, in a voluntary capacity. My interests include art and crafts, needle felting and reading. My passion is the coast especially the Pembrokeshire coastline and I also have a weak spot for the Brecon Beacons.

I hope to delve into the histories of the women of Wales past and present, but especially the women of 'The Valleys' and working-class women's stories.

I am very excited to be involved in this valuable, important collective at AMC/WAW.
